Prevent Sewer Backflow
Top Rated & Reviewed Sewer & Drain Service Provider
I called this company going through the list from my Yelp search. I ended up committing to an appointment with another sewer line rodding/camera plumbing service company in the midst of those phone calls. However, Drains Inc (Tim) called me back about an hour after those calls and despite mentioning that I booked an appointment with someone else, he did not rush to hang up and go about his day. Tim spoke to me for 15 minutes and asked about my issue and gave me some really great advice to save me money. That kind of ethics and integrity is rare these days and he really didn't have to. I am keeping my appointment with the other plumber to be respectful to my commitment to the next day appointment for basic rodding, but I am definitely calling Drains Inc the next time something in my money pit of a house decides to go wrong. He hauls everything in his van saving you time and money for sewer line issues, which are almost always time sensitive (so no need to wait for a rodder or a camera to be borrowed or rented). On top of that he is a stand up guy with fair pricing, so win win. Drains Inc. Saved to contacts.
I had Drains Inc. perform two projects. The first was to replace a old clay sewer line from the house to the septic tank that had broken. The second was to hydro plug a septic line and abandon a pit that was a remnant of a old 1950s era septic system. Both jobs were done quickly and at a reasonable price. Tim the owner is very responsive, & knowledgeable. When a small issue arose from some concrete settling while curing Tim took care of it as soon as the weather allowed. This speaks to his desire to make sure his clients are satisfied with the quality of work. I would highly recommend his services.
Tim kept me abreast of the scheduled appointment for the rodding of my sewer line for possible tree roots. Reasonable price that was based on the original description of the size (distance) and severity (roots) of the problem. I would call him again based on his fair price (mid-point), good interpersonal skills, and prompt reply and service.
Drains Inc. are the Professionals! We also call them every year to rod out our sewers to the street as we have huge trees. The owner is professional and honest!!!
Backwater valves to prevent sewer backflow
Flood control systems
Backwater valves are generally easier and cheaper to install but they have some limitations. For one, you cannot use any of the facilities in your home while it is in the closed position. And if you have seepage tiles or foundation drains that are tied into the sanitary sewer service, your basement may still flood once the valves close as the footing drains or seepage tile water will be trapped and could back up.
prevent sewer backflow
If so the footing drains or seepage tile will need to be separated out to a new sump pump pit. If you have a basement with no sump pump pit, assume that you have the footing drains or seepage tiles tied directly into your sewer service. Contact us today for more information.
Regular maintenance for optimal preparedness
Some maintenance is required to keep the protection measure in operation. If a backwater valve is recommended to prevent sewer backups, you should realize that regular maintenance is needed to keep the improvement working as intended. Inspection and cleaning of a backwater valve system is recommended once a year.
